Vista updates (KB957200 and KB953155)

A few readers are writing in to ask about two recent updates appearing in their queue: KB957200 and KB953155.

KB957200 is listed as a reliability update and according to Microsoft: "this update resolves some performance and reliability issues in Windows Vista. By applying this update, you can achieve better performance and responsiveness in various scenarios. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer."

KB953155 is a security update related to MS08-067.

953155 is not related to MS08-067 - it is MS08-062. The security bulletin ( was updated on Oct 29 to reflect that update packages for Itanium and "all supported editions of Windows Vista" have been made available. If you read the FAQ, there is an explanation as to why the update is being made available despite the lack of an exploit vector for those systems (those systems don't support Internet Printing).
